• “I think of the love of God as a great river, pouring through us even as the waters pour through our ravine at floodtime. Nothing can keep this love from pouring through us, except of course our own blocking of the river. Do you sometimes feel that you have got to the end of your love for someone who refuses and repulses you? Such a thought is folly, for one cannot come to the end of what one has not got. We have no store of love at all. We are not jugs, we are riverbeds.” – Amy Carmichael

Living Words by Dina Martin

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Prov. 25:11

Words can become something that can bring life and healing.

When our hearts are filled with good things, this is what will overflow unto others. This morning I see the importance of a grateful heart, because there are times when this will need to come from the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, especially in the times we live in. When touched in this way, we have something to offer that is “food” for others…to bring life and peace.
Gratitude is the inspiration of heaven’s most melodious anthems. Its fruit is joy in the time of mourning, courage in the day of despondency, security in the hour of loneliness, peace in the midst of battle, and satisfaction in spiritual or physical famine. – Dorothy Kelley Patterson

I was struck recently with the realization that the Living Water that will flow out from our inner most being will take the form of LIVING WORDS that we speak. “The tongue of the wise commendeth healing.” “The lips of the wise are a TREE OF LIFE.” Even Jesus said, “My WORDS are SPIRIT THEY are LIFE.”
When we are abiding in Christ and being filled with the Holy Spirit, the ministry of truth and life at work within us will overflow in the form of LIVING WORDS of truth spoken in love that will produce life in others.
LIVING WATERS BECOME LIVING WORDS!
Words spoken from our flesh have the power of decay and death!
Words spoken from the Holy Spirit have the power of fruit and life!
The true indicator that we are being filled with the Holy Spirit
is our overflowing with LIVING WORDS!
